Synopsis: The poems of Tim Hawkins range widely in geography, tone and style in search of the extraordinary in the things we take for granted, guided always by the mission of the saint and the lunatic to be both in the moment and apart from it at the same time. While expressing admiration for time-honored values like hard work, skill and fidelity to ideals and individuals, they also exhibit a deep appreciation for the irony and absurdity of existence, yet an unwillingness to submit to a cheap affectation of nihilism. In Wanderings at Deadline, Hawkins takes us on a tour of a landscape recognizable as part natural world and part memory and imagination, where we explore human thought, feeling and action at times resigned to hard truths and at times playful, capricious and inexplicable.
About the Author: Tim Hawkins has lived and traveled widely throughout North America, Southeast Asia, and Latin America, where he has worked as a journalist, technical writer, communications manager, and teacher in international schools. His career has also taken some interesting detours into such posts as fish cannery slime table worker, stevedore, nose-hair clipper model, and cram school teacher. After spending much of the '90's and '00's abroad, he currently lives in his hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. His writing has appeared in numerous print and online publications, most recently in Blueline, Eclectica, Iron Horse Literary Review, The Midwest Quarterly, The Pedestal Magazine, The Shit Creek Review, The Smoking Poet and Verse Wisconsin. He was nominated by the journal Four and Twenty for a 2012 Pushcart Prize. Wanderings at Deadline is his first book.
